Finally, you get to the section full of how-tos where the authors, Rebecca Thuss and Patrick Farrell, take you step-by-step through the process of making each of the 75 different flowers.

The flowers have each been marked with one of three different skill levels. Level 1 flowers incorporate the most basic flower making skills while level 3 flowers are larger in size and require more petal levels and coloring techniques.

Each how-to includes a smaller picture of the finished flower along with picture of the various flower parts numbered in the order they go together. I was truly stunned at the astonishing details many of the paper flowers have, and was pleasantly surprised at how relatively easy they seemed to be to make.

Rating details. The large blooms with the polka dot center was inspired by their roses, the pink and white bluebell-like flowers were inspired by Project 21, and those small blooms with the striped centers were made from striped ribbons See what I mean? I don't really copy a single project, but I take different bits and pieces from the different flower projects to create my own whimsical blooms. The styling of the flowers is top-notch, and I love that they place these crazy out-of-this-world blooms in real life settings.

For me, making the flower is the easy party, styling it and finding a nice vase or photographing it with a nice background is something I find challenging to THIS DAY. This book does a fantastic job showing you ways your flowers can be used - flowers for your hair, for gift wraps, for cakes.

If you don't end up making any of the flowers, just having this as a coffee table book is well worth the money too. Start with this book!Alistair MacDonald.
